Osvaldo Supino

Dance rhythms, LGBTQ rights and sensuality for the most awarded independent Italian artist in the world.

«Don’t Hold Back» is Osvaldo Supino’s overwhelming new single is out. The track follows the success of the previous single «Lights Down Low», which took the artist to the top of the global LGBT charts last June.

Co-written and co-produced by Osvaldo together with Ili and Riley Smith, «Don’t Hold Back» is an irresistible pop bombshell that hypnotises from the first listening. A perfect combination of grit, eccentricity, and sensuality, reminiscent of hits like «Get Sexy», with which the artist made his debut on the record market 10 years ago. In recent years he has become one of the most awarded and recognised independents abroad.

«There is a desire for lightness, to let go for three minutes and enjoy the moment without thinking about bills, problems and all the chaos that surrounds us», says Osvaldo to LGBTQ Music Chart. «I feel the need to share positive emotions with my audience, especially in this complicated historical, dark time».

«Don’t Hold Back» is part of the new project of Osvaldo that started in June with «Lights Down Low», and the Spanish version «Perder el control» that foresees the release of different singles before the release of the new album: «everything goes very fast in music and I want to bring my audience to feel more, to live each song deeply, exactly as I do when I write them. Even though they were released at different times, they are all connected songs in terms of sound and theme. There is really a creative bond between them that makes them part of one project».

The launch of «Don’t Hold Back» coincidentally falls at a time when the Italian Senate has rejected the Italian DDL Zan (law against homophobia), an issue that Osvaldo has felt very strongly about for years, being one of the most involved in terms of LGBTQ rights and a songwriter chosen by Spotify Italy for the «Claim your Space» campaign: «I feel humiliated, angry, disappointed by my country that I love so much. Every day I read stories of people discriminated against because of their sexuality and it is unacceptable. We have to make the change, it is necessary, it is fundamental to grow».

Following the release of «Don’t Hold Back» there will be a video clip coming out in the next few weeks and a long promotion with which the artist will start again, albeit virtually, to tour the world with his music.

To date, Osvaldo Supino is the most recognised and awarded independent Italian artist abroad, an absolute reference for international dance pop produced in Italy. He holds the record as the only Italian nominated three times at the BT Digital Music Awards, Unicef Award, Mei Award, 2 Nickelip awards, 2 LAIFFA Awards, Renaissance Awards, he represented Italy at Global Pride along with Mel B, Rita Ora and Elton John, among the only 4 Italians along with Laura Pausini, Eros Ramazzotti and Il Volo reviewed by CNN, and he was the first Italian male artist interviewed by Univision in the US.

Osvaldo is back with «Don’t Hold Back» and this time too he will not leave anyone indifferent.
